DIT Gulf Roadshow – Opportunities in an era of transformation
Event Venue and Description – Leeds
The Department for International Trade (DIT), HSBC and Pinsent Masons are delighted to host the 2019 DIT Gulf Roadshow where senior experts from the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) markets will share their experience and insight into winning business in the region.
The GCC markets comprise:
- Saudi Arabia
- United Arab Emirates (UAE)
The roadshow will focus particularly on the sectors of opportunity outlined in the Gulf countries’ transformation agendas as their markets move away from a dependence on hydrocarbons.
These sectors are:
• Education & Training
• Healthcare & Life Sciences
• Creative Services
UK trade with the GCC increased by 89.2% over the past decade 2009-18. This was mostly driven by an increase in goods trade, contributing 71.6% of the increase. Over the same period, UK trade with the world increased by 56.1%. In 2018, the GCC accounted for 2.9% of total UK trade. Were the GCC to be considered a single bloc it would be the UK’s 10th largest trading partner.
